This is the last post from this round of presentations, but a very special one! We experienced an emotional and heartfelt Gratitude presentation at Greenland Elementary School. There is great significance in this celebration as it embraces Universal Design Learning, in which educators develop their instruction to meet the wide range of diversity among all learners. A group of talented dedicated educators collaborating together who believe all students’ needs may not be equal, but they are equally important! Thank you for all of your efforts in another success story, not only by impacting this student’s education, but by touching a family’s hearts as well!! A special acknowledgement was also presented to John Flannery, Greenland Elementary School Principal, for embracing change, providing encouragement and exceptional leadership!

Best Buddies pairs students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in one-to-one friendships with volunteer peer students. If you are interested in partnering your child with a Best Buddies volunteer, please contact Mary Lou Willie at the High School.
Preparations for planning the transition from intermediate to the high school have started to take place. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s scheduling please speak to your child’s Learning Strategist (Special Education teacher) about recommendations or to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Certain students require hand scheduling, if you feel your son/daughter fits this category, you may request to meet with the representatives from both schools. Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or concerns.
As our Gratitude program gains momentum, I would like to share a few more details of each presentation.
